Opinion on 2B

Postby MementoMori5 » Wed May 02, 2012 2:11 pm

I have Ian Kinsler and Jason Kipnis, but was thinking about dropping Kipnis for Jose Altuve.

Thoughts?

Sure! One is outproducing the other, and despite a little bit of pop I think Altuve could match or even exceed whatever Kipnis puts up this year anyway.

I think Kipnis has been underperforming and Altuve has been overperforming...I'd hold on to Kipnis still if Altuve is the only other option. I think Altuve is a bit of a mirage...

I mean...I'm not biased or anything...but I think Kipnis is going to get better this year.

I mean, Kipnis is batting .280 with 3 HR, 13 RS, 13 RBI and 5 SB. That's pretty solid to this point.
Altuve is batting .367...on a .421 BABIP. How long do you think that's gonna stay that way? Rest of his numbers, other than RS, are less than Kipnis.
